Some of the complications which occur after classical treatment of breast cancer can best be treated by use of the omental flap described by Kiricuta. These include radionecrosis of the chest wall, skin defects occurring after radical mastectomy combined with maximal irradiation, and local recurrence taking place after classical treatment. The results from the Gustave-Roussy Institute, which include experience with twenty omental flaps performed in breast cancer patients, confirm the exceptional qualities of this flap, especially reconstucting defects in irradiated tissue.
